Hi, it’s me. I think I’ve been MIA since the middle of January, longer if you don’t count sponsored stuff I’ve written, and it’s all gone a bit arse up really hasn’t it?  I have fallen out of love with social media.  Never a good thing for a blogger to admit to, but I like to be honest.

I’ve been posting a few things recently that are probably a little bit “new age hippie” for the most part, just touching briefly (for me) on my new obsessions, no, that’s not the right word, more passion – although I am a little obsessed – crystals, burning sage, raising your vibrations, essential oils, the Law of Attraction and, of course, the power of the moon.
